Thanks, Josh.

I dug into it a bit, but dead-ended when my C-fu grew weak. The trail I was
following lead me to this in src/index.c around line 2020:

  l=*(LOCATION **)l;    /* Get next location */

which is some pointer black magic I don't grok.

It's segfaulting for me there on Centos 5.3 32bit machine.
